Emerging Tokyo-based label ARCHON has captured its Spring/Summer 2019 collection in a post-modern, utilitarian-tinged editorial lookbook. Titled “THE ADVENT OF A NEW AGE,” ARCHON combines elements of workwear with themes synonymous with streetwear, seeing relaxed fits, bold hues and artistic graphics adorn the collection.
The editorial spotlights a previously unseen collaboration between ARCHON and LA-based photographer Alexander Bortz — who has previously worked with the likes of Gucci, Dior and A$AP Rocky — showcasing the duo’s selection of tie-dyed garments. Elsewhere, the editorial captures ARCHON’s use of utility-inspired COBRA buckles on belts and bags, continuing its philosophy to “express functional beauty with a modal approach.”
In celebration of its debut SS19 collection, ARCHON will also be holding an exclusive pop-up shop SWG in Aichi Prefecture, medium-Nagoya-ku Osu 3-1-72, from 27 April to 6 May. Take a look at the editorial above, and for those looking to pick up pieces from ARCHON’s SS19 collection, head to Japanese retailers such as Encoreee online or instore at CARNATION.
